This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "Both players were slightly thrown off their game by the blustery conditions and transfer onto the grass. Andy threw himself heroically into the fray (often literally), but was ultimately overcome by some stolid, if unimaginative, play which benefited from the surface and conditions. "  -- Angus

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "We couldn't finish the match . We played 2 sets and will play the third set as soon as we find another slot to both play again. "  -- Pablo
  • "On 16th May the two players finally managed to play the last set of their game in Hornfair Park Tennis Courts. At the beginning of the set Armando was very focused and Pablo appered to be mentally out of the game. After 3-0 for Armando, Pablo managed to get into the game again and managed to win some games. However the initial advantage gained at the beginning of the set was too large for Pablo to overturn the overall score. Well deserved victory for Armando," -- Pablo:

Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Giles Thirkettle (May 8) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "Christian has devastating, crisp, topspun shots that sent Angus scuttling like a fool or simply watching in admiration as the first set evaporated in about ten minutes. At the start of the second set, perhaps Christian's concentration dipped on account of the easy victory? Perhaps it was the annoying helicopter? From then on, it was a case of distraction: erratic, limp, disruptive, and oddball shots which helped to undermine Christian's rhythm as Angus threw everything at survival. A freak escape, rather than a replicable victory. "  -- Angus

Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Pablo Lopez (Apr 28) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A fine, sporting match under constant threat of rain. The score highly flattering to Angus as most games went close, many back and forth around the deuce. Pablo's strength - particularly that sweeping forehand to the corners - was gaining during the second set. Angus just managed to close out the last couple of games to avoid a third, which would have been decisive in Pablo's favour, we're sure. "  -- Angus
Reveal CommentAndrew Lilley bt Giles Thirkettle (Apr 28) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A Marathon 2 setter on London marathon day! Lost count of the number of deuces. Highly enjoyable game and one particular rally of 40 shots was immense. Left everything on court but Andrew was just too good on the day. Hope to have another hit sometime....."  -- Giles
